program. >> the white house is on a charm offensive. last week, barack obama spoke on israeli television, addressing directly some of israel's concerns. > i have been crystal clear about my position on iran possessing a nuclear weapon -- that is a red line for us. it is something that would not only be dangerous for israel but would be dangerous for the world, dangerous for u.s. national security interests. >> in washington, it is no secret that obama does not have a good relationship with israel's prime minister, benjamin netanyahu. even if they put on a united front in public, as here in washington last year. >> they have fundamentally different views of how to advance peace in the area. the president started off by pressuring israel to make concessions, and israel, understandably, resisted and resented, and it has been like that for the last four years, unfortunately. >> israel looks to the u.s. to safeguard its very existence. republicans are quick to point out that while obama visited egypt during his first term, he never went to israel. they accuse the president of pandering more t
: later this week, president obama travels to israel, the west bank and jordan. iran, syria, and reviving the middle east peace process will be high on the agenda. the president faces challenges bridging differences between israelis and palestinians, and fractures within both camps. we'll examine those divisions tonight and tomorrow night. jeffrey brown begins with israel's new government. brown: in jerusalem today, workers literally rolled out the red carpet as part of a final preparations ahead of president obama's trip to the region. at the same time, israel's new coalition government was itself installed. led again by prime minister benjamin netanyahu but including new key players. its formation took weeks of negotiations after netanyahu won re-election in january's parliamentary elections. a victory accompanied by the surprisingly strong second-place finish of yair lapid. today netanyahu had to say about his new government stance on relations with the palestinians. >> with a palestinian partner who is willing to conduct negotiations in good faith, israel will be prepared for historic
since he became president four years ago. president obama officially ending weeks of speculation and formally nominating justice department official tomas perez to be the next secretary of labor. his nomination is controversial and repugnant. they say he has a radical-ish on records from immigration and liberal laws to voting rights. not to mention president obama already in a constitutional challenge to his choices to sit on the national labor relations board. they're taking its fight all the way to the supreme court after a d.c. appellate court invalidated the recess appointments made when the senate wasn't in recess. the senator has vowed to block the nomination. other stories we are bringing you tonight, wall street shrugging off a botched european union bailout of banks and an unprecedented tax on the deposits in cyprus, a tiny nation of 1.1 million people that will cost investors hundreds of billions of dollars in market capitalization. the dow jones industrial average down more than 100 points earlier but rebounded losing a modest 62 points. the s&p fell nine, the nasdaq d
to cut social security and medicare? >> we saw president obama say last week, trying to build up good will for a grand bargain. we've seen the immigration bill. cenk: great. ginger, so first of all grand bargain is a horrible for progress you haves horrible. it cuts social security, medicare and dramatically cuts spending. that's what the president is saving up his capital for. that's awesome. the second thing you mentioned there was immigration reform, but ginger wouldn't it help republicans if the democrats passed immigration reform with the republicans saying it's ok latinos, they're on your side, just politically speaking. >> it could be an issue where they say do we lose, you know, you lose a wedge issue it's gone. one of the important things to remember here, too is that control of the senate, there are a number of democratic senators from conservative states, north carolina louisiana alaska. arkansas, up for election in 2014 and this is an effort to protect them, to keep them from having to vote on something that's not popular in their home state. cenk: that's absolutely right.
obama travels to israel and the west bank this week, they are trying to assess whether a real opportunity exists for the united states to try to revive the long-stalled israeli/palestinian peace process. but among ordinary palestinians, he'll find no expectations that the u.s. can or will do anything to change the situation. >> when obama came to power we hoped he'd have a different policy but israeli pressures have had influence on him. >> he is not welcome here in palestine. what will he do for us? all of them are standing with israel, not with the palestinian people. >> warner: an even bigger hurding: the deep division among palestinians reflected in the ongoing split between hamas and fatah. this wall on the street in gaza is adorned by the smiles of two dead men-- yasser arafat, the fatah founder and first palestinian president who died in 2004-- and hamas spiritual leader sheikh achmed yassin, assassinated by his israel earlier that year. but the long time member of the p.l.o. says the two movements are poles apart. hamas and fatah have a serious split. it's multifacete
pinhead of the week, o'reilly. when the president is barack obama, it's beyond, a complete waste of time. and republicans should say they're not if favor of the law and who is the guy who laughs in the background? and that's canned laughter, clemente, kind of what they do on ""i love lucy"" we can't afford the entire audience laugh so we've got one person that laughs. press that button. (laughter) see, i told you. the factor tip of the day. one of the most common phrases in the english language is i'm sorry. we all say it because we all do things that aren't good. the problem is it's not enough to say i'm sorry, and children especially need to learn that. if you do something bad to another person, you need to make amends as well as apologize. so, here is the factor tip of the day, think back over the last few weeks and months and if you've hurt somebody, even if you've apologized, try to make it up to them in a concrete way. and going forward, i'm sorry should always be accompanied by some form of restitution. that will automatically make you a person with class. factor tip of th
week, president obama told a tv interviewer he didn't have immediate debt crisis. or we in america don't have an immediate debt crisis. and this weekend speaker boehner said basically the same thing. >> we do not have an immediate debt crisis. but we all know that we have one looming. >> all right. you know what, i think they both could be right. i don't think we have an immediate debt crisis. i like to see more growth, not just debt root canal. oh, my god, i said it. that's, by the way, why the business round table of american ceos is pushing hard for a lower, more competitive, more pro-growth 25% corporate tax rate. so let's talk about this. steve forbes, judd gregg, jared bernstein, still with us. all right, steve forbes, look, i have -- i want to balance the budget all the rest of it, but it just strikes me that the republicans are a little bit too root canal, a little bit too debt-obsessed, a little bit too deficit-obsessed and don't talk about the economy and jobs, which polls still show are the number-one issue. >> yeah, they've got to go back to reagan and jack kemp to stop act
green tie. >> it's a real opportunity to celebrate st. patrick's week, i have a second tie for the president if he so wishes and of course, there is a standing open invitation to president obama to come back to ireland. >>> i'm luke russert live in washington, we'll check in with andrea, who is in jerusalem in a moment. but first, breaking news out of nevada -- the u.s. military says an overnight live fire training accident at the hawthorne army depot in western nevada has killed at least seven marines. nbc's chief pentagon correspondent, jim miklaszewski joins me with the latest. obviously this happened late last night. the news started breaking this morning. what have we learned in the last few hours since i spoke to you? >> well, as you said, luke, this occurred during a live-fire training exercise involving firing mortars on a range there at the hawthorne army depot. according to marine corps officials, it appears that one of the 60-millimeter rounds prematurely exploded while it was still in the firing tube. or perhaps while loading it into the tube. killing seven mari
delicious. >>> welcome back, everybody, the sequester cuts will kick in next week and president obama is getting some flack for canceling white house tours that will affect the easter egg roll for lots of kids and their parents that get invited to the white house. so what does this mean? we'll check in with congressman stenny hoyer, a democrat from maryland. maybe you can fill us in on what politico is pointing out when republicans and democrats are in jeopardy of losing their seats because of the sequester. it looks like the constituents really aren't buying into the blame game here of the finger-pointing back and forth. both sides are taking a hit. what happened to getting a deal? >> i think the american people want us to adopt a common-sense path forward and get us to fiscal sustainability. they understand that we haven't been managing the finances of the country the way we ought to be. we're in debt. and they also need to know we're interested in growing the economy. we need jobs. we think the democratic alternatives that both that senator murray is offering in the senate and chri
obama but on each other. work on the contrasting house and senate plans continue this week. for "nightly business report" i'm john harwood on capital hill. >> i asked when we spoke recently but began by getting him to rate the u.s. economy on a scale of 1 to 10 with 10 being very strong. >> i think it's trying to be a 6 but the government, in generally, the government doing the wrong thing might be pulling it back to a 4. we're definitely off the bottom and economy is trying to recover. . are you concerned? i spoke with form early fed chairman alan greenspan. he said with respect to the sequestered, rising asset prices both in stocks and housing may in part overset the otherwise dill tear just effects of the federal spending cuts. are you in that camp at all? >> not especially. there's a little bit coming from stocks but the main thing is housing is coming back. we've bit very few house force a long time. household debt is coming down relative to income. balance sheets are in better shape. we have in a way, we've been down so long there's no place to go but up, so the private sector is s
no change at $93.74 a barrel. this week, both president obama and john boehner agreed on something. we are not, repeat, not facing an imminent debt crisis. barrelling towards 17 trillion dollars in debt, what? me worried? we're on that one next. clients are always learning more to make their money do more.

, this is charlie rose. >> rose: president obama will travel to the mile east this week. it will be his first time visiting since he entered the white house four years ago. he will meet newly reelected prime minister benjamin netanyahu in jerusalem on wednesday. the president has often been criticized for his distance relationship with the israeli leader but many see this visit as a chance to make things better. much is at stake as israel grapples with a nuclear iran and a lagging peace process. joining me, aaron david miller, vice president of woodrow wilson international center for scholars and a former middle east advisor to democratic and republican secretaries state. here in new york, steven cook of the council on foreign relations. i'm pleased to have both of them back on this program. let me begin with you steven what's the hope of this trip? >> well, the hope is at least officially for the president to reset his relationship with the israeli leader and the israeli people. as you pointed out. there's been some difficulty in the relationship between the leaders. there's been rhetoric the way
, on another subject, this week president obama will travel to two of our closest allies, israel and jordan. his visit will come at a moment of great importance for each of our governments. i join in conveying a message of congratulations to prime minister netanyahu in having formed a new government, no in restraighting -- restating our determination to prevent iran from acquiring a nuclear weapon and in pledging to work with israel to meet the regional challenge caused by civil strife in syria. the fighting in syria has produced refugee flows of at least one until million people into iraq, turkey, jordan, and lebanon. also of concern to jordan, israel and other allies in the region is the flow of foreign fighters into syria, especially the alnesra front. during his viflt i hope the president makes progress in working with our allies to address these threats that have developed while bashar al-assad remains in power. and to begin the important planning to address the challenges that will come with his fall, such as how best to secure chemical weapon stockpiles. none of these threats or chal
, the bill comes to the fore for voting this week -- to the floor for voting this week and president obama hoping for a grand bargain. here is the headline with president obama telling the credits it is better to make changes when a democrat is in office rather than risk doing so under a republican chief executive. guest: i have felt it was possible to change the way we do is this and that is why i voted against the new year's eve deal. it was not enough. it was not bold, it did not change anything and it created three fiscal cliff's for a amount of revenue recaptured. i am open to being able to make changes. in fact, if we accelerate the health care reform that has already been improved rather than pretend like we are going to abolish it, there are opportunities for us to dramatically reduce expenditures in the out years. i come from a state that is working to accelerate that reform. that $1.9ment has billion that we can meet our promise of reducing the rate of increase 2% a year and maintain the quality standards. these are the things we should be working on rather than fairyland budgeti
week. there is a wide perception that president obama is getting favorable treatment at the national level by the press and you would assume that bleeds down the local level as well. >> that's not just a perception. >> if you believe that or not finance in play if it's true and it looks like it is. that helps president obama immeasurablably. the media tends to ignore stories that make him look bad. uninformed electorate which is growing in this country gets the perception that is he a winner a good guy that he is an effective president. so what we have here is that the press is not promoting the news anymore. in business to promote a certain candidate. that's why we did this denver post story. even using the same language against me. >> right. but i think you missed something that is a big story. and i'm not sure how you missed it. >> bill: there you go. >> tell me if you agree with me. in the interview you did with hubbard. the ed toward page editor and in the sound cut you played in the lead-in to this segment right now. hubbard says that when the republics are in the majority in t
and 1 family tractors. >> brian: glad you're up. president obama has spent the last few weeks sit down with congressional republican senatial republicans and talking about maybe getting some type of grand bargain. it's called the charm offensive by some. he claims to be looking for a bipartisan solution to the many budget problems we've been facing for the last four years. joining us now, a man straight from the business world to the senate seat, senator ron johnson. you were at both of those meetings. we heard about substance and directness. you believe the president knows exactly what he needs to do with entitlements. he's just not saying it. correct? >> good morning, brian. yeah. he laid out very accurately really the priority of the problems, health care spending, medicare. it was interesting because he made the point that part of the problem in reforming medicare is that americans pay one dollar in, but they're going to get $3 out in benefits and he went on it say but americans don't understand that, so my input back to him was, mr. president, you have the bully pull bit. if you s
that relationship that you alluded to. what is the relationship between obama and netanyahu like? >> it's very, very tense obviously. three years ago to the week is when vice president joe biden went to jerusalem, a trip that i covered for the "washington post," and to do the very same thing, make nice to israelis, to reassure them that they have u.s. support at a time when they feel isolated regionally and internationally. that trip blew up when there was an israeli announcement during the trip of new settlement construction in east jerusalem. this led to a harsh rebuke by joe biden and kicked off three years of tension between the president and the prime minister. they have not been able to get on the same page to the county where president obama has really stopped talking about it. i'm not clear how much he's even going to talk about the palestinian issue on this trip. maybe indirectly but they really haven't had much of a meeting of the minds when it comes to the major core issues such as settlements, etc. then the real retrenchment from what president obama had hoped to do originally e. not to

" friday night of this week at 9:00. the documentary sheds light on the manipulated intelligence that got us into iraq. unfortunately we have not learned from all we lost in iraq. as president obama has also committed us to an additional 10 years in afghanistan, thanks to a strategic security agreement he made without congress voting on it or even debating it. this weekend i read two articles that really spoke to the corruption happening in afghanistan. one was an a.p. article i read in my hometown paper titled "u.s. helicopter crashes in afghanistan killing one" and the other is from "the new york times" titled "afghans protest u.s. special forces: complaints about night rage spark calls for withdrawal." i'll quote from the first article. the crash has come as united states officials are grappling with tough talk from president karzai whose recent anti-american rhetoric has complicated relations at a time when international troops are withdrawing from the war. the article continues saying, karzai stated this week by accusing the united states and the taliban of being in conclusion on two
